Oh, the Distractions.....

The first thing I thought, when I saw these on the design wall is.....I have to tone them down.

So I woke up all ready to do just that and managed to cut a few strips. Then the power went out for a good while.... I might as well just settle in with a good novel right!

Then just as the power came back on, my husband returned from his morning coffee and suggested a walk.......  
How could I resist...the call of the ocean is just too strong. After a long long walk in the sunshine..... that novel and a cool drink just called my name. I might even have dozed off a few times.

I did sew a few more strips after dinner.


  1. I am just really amazed how those added strips change the tone/volume of the fabric!


  2. It is interesting the effect the strips gives, does it tone them down or create depth, the colours behind the blinds?

  3. I have just found your blog, and I'm so inspired at your work. Makes me wish I had a lot more stripes in my stash!!

  4. These are transforming nicely - can't wait for the next instalment .....
    Dstractions - oh, boy, yes they have an impact on the creative journey - distractions have kept me from getting near the sewing machine all week - hopefully next week

  5. Sounds like a lovely day - a walk with husband on the beach or sewing? - no contest, sewing can wait. (Great designs by the way).

  6. Loving these blocks! As always your work is awesome! Who is that beautiful fabric by?
